It's that time of year again. Everyone is doing their top games list. I thought it would be fun to do one again this year, if only to see where the games on my list last year end up. This year I felt confident in going up to 75 games. As a disclaimer again this year, this list is games that I have played. So there may be games that are much better than some games that I have on the list but I haven't played them so....
Also i did not bother to include any games that I have rated a 5 or lower here on BGG.
This year I am listing them from worst to first so number one on the list is my seventy fifth game and seventy five is my number one.
Here is a link to last years list http://boardgamegeek.com/geeklist/163980/my-top-25-games-201...
Ok here we go.

A silly game for a larger group to play. I like the simultaneous card play.

A good party game. What is so fantastic about the game is that you don't need to know the answer, just a good guess.

A solid worker placement game. It can get a little dull for me but I still like to play it. I like that you choose when to take your workers back.

This game has a lot of things going on at the same time but it is fun to try and balance all those things going on in the city while trying to solve a murder.

First off I hate the artwork for this game but i really like the mechanisms for this game. Matching up the different "spell" components to make your spell work better than your opponents.

This could really be any version of fluxx in this spot but I like the Star Fluxx theme the best.
I know Fluxx isn't universally liked by "Real Gamers" but I have had fun whenever I have played the game. I like how the rules change on a dime and they can create some very interesting situations.

I like how this game feels a little bit like Magic the gathering but you don't need to put any effort into creating the decks. You just choose two factions and shuffle them together.

My favorite thing to do in this game is to try and arrange things so I can pay exact price for the tile I actually need so I get another turn.

I have not been able to build my own deck to play this game but even playing the base decks this is a good game. A very punishing game though.

A good miniatures game that is pretty easy to get into. No painting skill required. And it has super heroes. Who doesn't want to battle with super heroes?

I like in this game that you have to try and balance your four different scores because your final score is the lowest score.

This series of games got a bad rap because the person who got the first upgraded ship had a huge advantage the rest of the game. The original series version fixed that issue and is actually a pretty solid deck builder.

A surprisingly good game where you can't see your own cards but you see all the other players cards. It can be pretty difficult to get cards played in the correct order.

Love the Firefly universe and like pickup and deliver games. This game seems to run a little long and end quite abruptly just when you get a good crew together.

An interesting take on a deck building game. Love the win condition in this game. It's not who gets the most victory points but who can force ten or more gems on their opponent first.

I only have the base set of this game and I can see that this can be a very solid game for those willing to make the investment in expansions. But unfortunately I used to be very into magic and I do not wish to get caught in the never ending expansion release cycle again.

A good co-op or vs. deck builder. It's really cool that every card you can buy is available to you at the beginning of the game and your cards work different than the next persons.
